UICA is always seeking proposals for works that address contemporary issues and concerns, and/or work that pushes traditional boundaries in its treatment of materials or subject. Exhibitions are planned several months to a year in advance. Please keep this in mind when proposing shows.

Exit Space Project

The UICA will act as host for a dynamic experiment investigating the ideas, images and conversation being conveyed by contemporary artists working within the public space. This first volume of The Exit Space Project will feature contemporary street/public artists from the Midwest. The essence of their Exit Space Gallery installation will be continued into the public space on sanctioned utility boxes, bus stops, buildings and construction sites among others throughout West Michigan.
